ca. 1880. handmade brooch. Silver mounted with red gold. The brooch contains altogether approx. 3,30 ct. diamonds and 5 pearls (large pearl 13,5 mm diameter). The diamonds are cut in old cut or Marzarin / French cut and suggest an even earlier manufacturing time. The pearls (seedless fresh water cultured pearls) were added later. Also the brooch and the hook have been renewed later. The diamond settings are worked à jour on the back. A total of 84 diamonds are included, most of them slightly tinted white with small to distinct inclusions. Total width of the brooch 4.6 cm. Very good condition.
